In that case, if PR did not mess up and it is not a typo, Onkyo may be trying a variation of the Denon strategy in their xx12 series of AVRs, for it's 2012 line.

But note that it's not Pro capable, from the press release:-), which is smart to protect their higher lines.

Audio Gear: Trinnov Altitude 16/24, NAD M27 amp, Crown XLS 1502 stereo amps (2)

More gear to follow as I get going with the Altitude...

I received my 515 today and am completely puzzled at how the dual HDMI outputs are "working". I am trying to drive two HDTVs simultaneously. The TV connected to HDMI MAIN has the internal speakers disabled and uses my 5.1 surround speakers and sub. The TV connected to HDMI SUB is in the basement below my main room and uses the internal TV speakers. I have monitor out set to "BOTH" and I get an HD picture on both sets. There is no sound on the TV connected to HDMI SUB unless the receiver is in standby mode. If I enable the Onkyo option to "enable audio to TV", this disables all of the speakers in my theater room but audio is then passed over HDMI SUB. Apparently HDMI SUB is only useful if you are driving a projector and do not need sound passed over HDMI while the receiver is on. I pray that I am doing something wrong, but I don't think so. I fear this is working as advertised but not the way I wanted it to. Thanks in advance if you can help/educate me.

Correct. It is designed for someone that has both a TV and PJ, and is working as it should.

What's with the model numbers?
1. Why isn't there a 10 in them?

2. Why isn't at least one number constant to mark the year/series? ... or it that what the "1" is suppose to be (and we dropped the 0)?

My 607 is still running fine, but we push it pretty hard every day. Always on the lookout for the next one. I also plan to go bigger next time ... I was thinking model-8.

Really interested in 818, but we can just talk about the 717.

What happened to the Universal Port?

How does one add HD-Radio?

I just recently got a 515. It has some cool features and I like it, but I have a question that I hope someone can help me with.

I have my Tivo HD running through it via HDMI and then the HDMI out goes to the TV. The sound goes through the 515 and my external speakers and not through the TV.

While watching TV, the receiver will periodically make a couple of clicking noises (usually two) and then the video on the TV screen will freeze, usually just for a couple of seconds. This didn't happen with the old receiver that was hooked to the Tivo. The receiver doesn't seem to be shutting off during this time - the lights on the display stay on. The sound is very similar, though, to the click it makes when I shut it off.

So my question is: does this mean simply that I've got a defective receiver and I need to return it, or could something else be the problem? I've checked all of the connections and the cables are all well-connected. I'm not sure of what else to do.

Any help is appreciated!
